(AmericanProsperity.com) – On Tuesday night, Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) finally acknowledged he secretly met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at a security conference in Munich, Germany.

I met w the Iranian Foriegn Minister in Munich. It’s dangerous not to talk to adversaries, esp amidst a cycle of escalation.

Murphy said he didn’t seek to undermine Trump. However, he stated that someone should talk with the Iranians if Trump wasn’t going to.
The Iranians got exactly what they wanted — an audience with a US leader. Zarif responded saying the administration was afraid a senator would hear the facts.
In 2017, Murphy accused the Trump transition team of undermining US foreign policy when future National Security Advisor Michael Flynn spoke by phone with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kisylak.
He immediately called for investigations saying that no one, not even a transition team, can legally undermine a current administration’s foreign policy.
